ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — The director of Tikrit’s Alam district in Salahadin province, Abdulla Sabah, told Rudaw on Thursday that 90 percent of refugees and displaced families from the district have returned home.

“After pushing out ISIS from the districts inside Salahadin province, we managed to clear the area from mines and explosives. This encouraged the refugees to return back,” Sabah said.

In March, Iraqi security forces were able to retake control of Tikrit, a city located northwest of Baghdad, after it was seized by ISIS fighters.

The oil-rich city of Baiji north of Tikrit is still a center of fierce fighting.

How about 100% if they are non-kurdish.

If I were an Arab refugee, shielded by Kurds for half a year, and fed too... I would be extremely grateful. As in "you want your own nation now? yes please you sooooo deserve it"! But in more than a year of reading Iraq/Syria stories I never noticed any Arab thinking along those lines...

Currently independent might be bad for kurdistan because of oil economy domination, corruption, lack of variety in economy and current war. If you fight against corruption and make variety in economy then there is big chance to Kurdistan to get independent. Im arab.

I hope they got home safely back to their homes. Finally we can have peace, which is all we want.
